Father of Unnao woman, who was 'raped' by a BJP MLA, dies while in custody
In yet another twist in the tale, the father of the woman who had alleged that his daughter was raped by a Bharatiya Janata Party MLA and some of his accomplices, has died while in police custody.

He had been arrested yesterday and his daughter and the rest of the family had tried to commit suicide outside the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence. The family members, however, say that he was murdered while in jail. They have even alleged that he was murdered by Kuldeep Singh Sengar (The BJP MLA from Unnao who is accused of the rape.) 

The daughter (18-years-old) was allegedly raped by the BJP MLA previous year and her father had been running from pillar to post for the past one year in order to get justice but much to his dismay and much more to our system's disgust in which some of the political leaders misuse their powers, he didn't get any. 

The police didn't even register a case against the MLA in order to carry on the investigation but the father had been pursuing this case in one of the local courts for almost a year. About a week back, the father was allegedly thrashed by the BJP MLA's brother. He beat the father repeatedly so much that he received brutal injuries over his entire body. What is even more incomprehensibly callous is that the police lodged a case against the father and threw him into the jail, instead of getting him some treatment. It is most probably because he didn't receive proper treatment at the proper time that he succumbed to his injuries. 

The rape victim (the daughter) on the other hand tried to burn herself on Sunday near Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's house in a high security zone alleging that the police was not acting on her complaint against local BJP MLA, who, according to her had raped her last year. 

However, the security persons present there got hold of her before she could light up the fire after lacing herself with kerosene. She was later handed over to the Gautam Palli Police.
